Don’t waste time on those who won’t make time for you
Real friends are supposed to be there to help you pull through
Bullshit says they were busy when you needed someone to talk to
Excuses say that they weren’t there like you should expect them to do
So I’ll bite my lip in agitation until it bleeds
I’d expect something better when your friend’s in need
Expectation is the root of disappointment so don’t expect to succeed
Hope is the root of all expectation so don’t plant the seed.
I know this doesn’t sound like me, and maybe it’s not
But I try to learn from my mistakes and not get lost in the same spot
So while practicing forgiveness is always the best bet on your lots
Getting taken advantage of will always make you feel caught
I suppose the point of the poem is forgive but don’t forget
Giving second chances isn’t a safe gamble on which to bet.
